I am super excited to present you Samantha Knight.
Los Angeles-based designer Samantha has recently launched her line of fine jewelry. Luxurious and timeless. Everything a woman needs!
Her jewelry blends traditional ideas about luxury with a fresh, modern twist, perfect for stacking, collecting, and layering with older, well-loved pieces. Trends come and go, but SKFJ understands that simple, beautiful designs will last a lifetime. Each piece is crafted to stand the test of time in terms of style and durability, without the astronomical price tag usually associated with fine jewelry.

One of my personal favorite pieces is the custom signet ring.
But her fine rings are just as equisite and perfect to stcak...endlessly.

Expressed in delicate lines and exquisitely hand-set gemstones, Samantha Knight takes aim at the notion of fine jewelry as ornate, frumpy, dust-covered museum pieces to be trotted out for special occasions, if at all.
On the contrary,  Samantha wants her pieces to be worn every day, for every occasion, and for no particular reason. Long known for creating “livable luxury” in the home with the lifestyle brands madport and madport décor, Samantha’s design intuition shimmers with classic-but-edgy pieces to dress up a jeans-and-tee outfit or make a celebration shine brighter.

In addition to Samantha's new designs, she offers custom jewelry conversion. Consider it a one-of-a-kind makeover for antique and vintage jewelry, transforming pieces into modern designs so that the jewels of your Aunt Jenny’s engagement ring can grace your favorite outfit, too.

I have a lot of admiration for Samantha because besides her jobs she also has four kids to raise. Two fulltime jobs (and everything what comes inbetween). This deserves a standing ovation!

I asked Susan of Circa1700, who is a friend of Samantha and a fellow designer, to drop a few lines about Samantha:
Sometimes you meet a fellow designer and form an instant bond over your shared love of jewelry. That was how it was for me when I met Samantha - and so a friendship was born. When looking at jewelry, I’m always searching for that special piece that speaks to me and there are so many in Samantha’s line that do - that I had no choice but to add them to my personal collection. What I love about Samantha’s design aesthetic is how she seamlessly blends sophistication with rocker chic while adding a twist with antique inspired pieces, creating a timeless look with each piece. It’s exciting to be in the front row getting to watch a new designer emerge and Samantha is going to be one to watch!
